Just as an aside. I am always amazed at some of the Ads on QL of parents looking for child minders. Funny that they would trust their most valuable asset to a complete stranger being paid very little money.

may her soul rest in peace.. well my opinion is parents do have responsibility as being parents , along with they do have responsibility to be kind & supportive to there servants too. there are so much cases we hear about injustice with poor maids & house workers. curse comes itself to you when you are unhuman & unfair to anyone.
